You know you're a geek when:
Your boyfriend says "You're my particle beam weapon of love." and you think it's sweet and wonderful.

Nyargh. So damn lazy. I've decided to beat the heat via sleep, which places an unholy amount of guilt on me, since I have lots and lots and LOTS of things I should be doing. Like looking for a JOB. Goddamn, I'm pathetic.
Anyway, fueled by guilt and fury, I have 4 goals today:
1. Build webpage for design business.
2. Get at least 2 pages done on the comic.
3. Clean the house (Tired of living in FILTH!).
4. Get sodding drunk.
I know I'll at least get #4 done.
This site is AWESOME.

What type of Bishounen are you? Find out at artificial-soul.net by Rin.
Technically I guess I shouldn't have taken that since I'm a girl, but what the fuck.
I got up at six-fucking-thirty.
Alright, not everything's resolved yet, but I guess it can wait.
I was going to go run some errands, but it's so fucking hot I can barely walk outside with my sleeves on, so screw it...Aikido's going to be hell as it is, and Winco and Safeway are both open all night. Night is good. Night is my friend. Night doesn't attack my fragile, monitor-tanned skin.
Other news: Confession time...I'd been doing really good with the college student diet of ramen, microwave burritos, Lucky Charms and other cheap non-healthy things. See, I never got this stuff in Boise. In Boise I got tofu brownies and almond butter, and bread that you could break teeth on because it was so grainy. Not all of that stuff is bad (tofu brownies, as awful and frightening as they sound, are actually ok). But there comes a time when you're sick and tired of eating weird food, and you just want to eat what all the other kids eat, because it's sugary and tastes good.
That's not to say that the whole time I've been in Corvallis I've been eating junk...I balance things out with fruit and veggies, and I've got Chris eating a lot healthier than he would be without me around; I just try to stay away from the more blatant "health food" foods because they have "MOM" written all over them.
Well, yesterday I broke down. Years of my mother's influence could no longer be ignored. I bought tofu.
Cry for me.

I am so very, very pissed right now. More on that later, as it's not really resolved yet, and I have the decency not to talk shit about people online.
For now, you guys can check out the current art-in-progress:
I am bored, so I taunt you! Except Poopyteeth, Tweak, and The Cat's Meow. You guys seem ok, and seem to only be generally silly, or mock people for legitimate reasons, which are both ok by me. Robdawg, No, and Octavian (though I'm not really sure whose side Octavian is on?) are all jerks who seem to avoid my arguments rather than reply to them. What the hell? You're going to troll and run? Get back here, bitches!
And to be perfectly honest, this is not just anti-troll. I don't care what side you're on, Octavian, or any of you really. If you're dumb and you try to mock me, I'm going to mock you back. If you're decent then I'll probably lay off, but if you push it I'll push back. And don't give me any "You're a ho, you suxx0r." crap because it's not based on anything and I'll just delete it.
Yeah, I must be damn bored. Well, let the fun begin.

Damn...it really sucks in 800x600, doesn't it?
Oh well...I'm still working out all the bugs, so you all you people with crappy resolutions are just going to have to put up with sideways scroll bars for awhile.
Feeling a bit better today, but still sniffly. I have my first class of Aikido tonight, which I'm a little nervous about, but still looking forward to. I think my problem is that I have a huge amount of insecurity around people I don't know very well or at all...I loosen up when I drink though, which may explain why I've been drinking so much when I go to parties. People scare me. o_O
Other news...Chris, "William" and I are thinking about starting a webdesign business, becase we need money. Chris and "William" can do all the fancy technical stuff, and I can make it look nice. Either that or I'm going to start selling off art prints or something. Need a job.
My diet lately has consisted mostly of microwave burritos (we found these 38 cent burritos at WinCo that are REALLY good), ramen, and tea. This probably isn't very healthy, but I don't have any particular desire to change it, since everything on that list is cheap and tasty.
More art up soon, yo.
I should probably figure out where the hell my Aikido class is, too.
Stupid fucking colds...I hate them!
You're sick enough so that you can't really do anything productive, but not sick enough that you don't feel guilty about it.
Still tinkering with the new page...hopefully I'll get the rest of the bugs worked out by tonight, but I still haven't fiddled with it in 800x600 resolution...so if it's too wide or something, I apologize. Anyway, this should be easier to read, and not have any of those stupid fucking "ghost box" effects.
Ok, time for some more tea.

Well, went out to dinner with Chris's parents/sister...we were going to get Japanese (I got to pick...can you tell?) but they were closed, so we ended up going to some grill place, which was ok but really expensive. I've been sick all fucking day and it's really getting on my nerves...my nose is all runny and my throat hurts, and it sucks. It's not even the kind of sickness that kicks your ass until you get babied and taken care of, it's the stupid pussy passive kind of sickness that's not really there enough to complain about, because you know that if you do start whining, you'll have to admit that it's really not that bad, it just doesn't go away. Gah.
I was stumped on the new site design for awhile, until I found this great Legend of Mana art that I'm going to use...it's going to be spiffy. I always start my layout by doing a sort of "rough draft" in photoshop, so I could post a picture of what it'll probably look like, but I think you guys should be surprised. Stay tuned, yo.
Current webcam pic is our rat Balthamos curled up in a cute little ball with his tail draped over his head. Awww...so cute! We're currently adding on to his cage by hollowing out a monitor which we're going to attatch to his present abode by way of a pvc pipe. It's going to ROCK. Will definitely post pictures. We're also considering trying to build a cage out of just a normal tower case at some point...computer case rodent cages...can you say "untapped market"?
In other news, the other day at Jack in the Box I laughed so hard at something Chris said (I think it was something about socks) that I sprayed water out of my nose in what felt like at least a 2-foot radius.
Probably it wasn't 2 feet. It felt like it though.
(Maybe the water incident is the reason my nose is so goddamn drippy.)
